After consulting with parents on a 'right to request' for wraparound care, we asked two providers to consider providing this service for us. Both providers informed us that due to the low number of requests for this service, that they could not proceed with this any further. Can I please assure you that wraparound care will be reviewed.

Members of the choir performed Christmas carols, they sang beautifully and were great ambassadors for the school.
Sports & Well-being Week - April 2023
On our return from the Easter holidays, both schools took part in a Sports & Well-being week. Educating the children to look after their well-being is extremely important to us and to make this learning fun we had a week's worth of special activities. Our catering company (HCL) delivered an assembly all about how eating the right food helps keep us healthy and gives us energy. They also provided the opportunity for children in Years 3 and 4 to make smoothies using a smoothie pedal bike. The children really enjoyed this and it caused much excitement, and I have even heard that some children were inspired to make smoothies at home afterwards! Our teachers planned activities around all aspects of well-being, talking about healthy mindsets and how we can be calm and give our bodies and minds a rest when needed. Some of the children thought about healthy eating, and made various food dishes using healthy ingredients - the classrooms smelt amazing! Premier Sport delivered lots of different sports including, glow-in-the-dark dodgeball and golf and team games, and our week ended with both schools taking part in a whole school afternoon of different sports. The children had an amazing week, and it was great to see them all enthusiastically taking part, joining in with their peers and showing the values of our school.
We were delighted to receive this feedback from one of our parents, 'I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has played a part in organising and running this healthy well-being week. Our children loved it and came home each day with stories of what they'd done and looking forward to the next day.'
Easter Services - Greenfield & Pulloxhill - March 2023
Pulloxhill delivered a wonderful Easter Service at the church. The older children retold the Easter story and read prayers. The younger children delivered poems and songs for us to enjoy.
At Greenfield, children in Reception and Years 1 and 2 delivered a delightful service. The children worked incredibly hard on the songs, rhymes and poems, and delivered with such confidence! As is tradition, our children in Year 3 delivered the Easter story at Flitton Church, again demonstrating wonderful confidence and clarity. The choir were invited to support with the songs, which they had spent every lunchtime for weeks rehearsing.
Well done to everybody!
Worship Leaders - March 2023
Worship Leaders split into two groups to plan and deliver their own Collective Worships this half term. Both groups were amazing!
Group 1 acted out and narrated the story of The Good Samaritan, to remind us about showing Kindness as Christians.
Group 2 told a story about kindness that sent us all a message about the importance of being kind and sharing.
The children are to be applauded for their efforts, they were asked to complete this task with very little adult help, and they rose to the challenge!
Now they have had some practise, the next step will be to invite parents and governors in to watch.
World Book Day - March 2023
Both schools were lucky enough to be visited by the author, Lou Treleaven for World Book Day. Classes had workshops featuring particular texts and enjoyed making book covers, writing about their favourite characters, creating special potions, being pirates, and much, much more. The children had a wonderful time. We received this message from Lou Treleaven the following day:
'Thank you so much to the staff and children for having me today and making me feel so welcome. I was impressed by the positivity and enthusiasm of the children and really enjoyed meeting them.'
Art Exhibition - February 2023
Both schools held an Art Exhibition to showcase some of the wonderful learning that has been taking place in art. It was lovely to see so many parents and grandparents attend, and it was a delight to see the children show off their hard work.
